Texas Wetlands Discovery Trunk

We now have Discovery Trunks for wetlands studies!

Twenty-five Texas Wetland Education Trunks have been distributed to educators and education centers across the state and are available for loan to teachers.

These trunks contain lesson plans, books, posters, videos, Texas Amphibian Watch materials (including a frog and toad calls cd-rom) and field equipment to guide students in their investigations of wetland habitats. The trunks emphasize hands-on learning both in the classroom and in the field. Suggested activities at different grade levels for a 1- to 3-week study of Texas wetlands are correlated to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills.

For information on trunk locations and contacts, see below. For other questions, phone TPWD Aquatic Education Coordinator, Karen Marks, at 512.389.4732.
